Materion Precision Optics, a Materion Corporation (NYSE:MTRN) business, is introducing its family of ArrayTecTM filter arrays in a range of designs to meet individual customer needs. Added to its currently available “Custom” line are the new “Basic” and “Select” categories, all high-resolution imaging arrays used in demanding space and multi-spectral defense and commercial applications. Each filter array construction offers distinct advantages as to customization, size, assembly, price and lead-time.

Select an Optimal Filter Array

Customers now have the option to choose a commercial off-the-shelf “Standard” filter array, a semi-customized “Select” filter array or a fully “Custom” filter array. In selecting the best filter array for their application, criteria such as balancing better system performance with complexity, cost and lead time can be considered. The following compares features of the three filter array types.

Market Breakthrough

Materion Precision Optics is a leading manufacturer of complex optical filters in the industry. Its filter array technology improves performance and reduces size and weight, while its novel techniques for stray light control provide superior image quality. These innovations led to the replacement of single wavelength, discrete filters in most multi-spectral, space-based instruments. Materion ArrayTecTM “Standard” and “Select” options will allow this technology to be used in a broader set of commercial applications such as Pico-satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles, hand-held spectroscopy, color matching and mobile sensing applications.

For those interested in the innovative Materion ArrayTecTM filter arrays, there are multiple factors to consider from application to size to price to turn-around time. For assistance in choosing whether a Basic, Select or Custom filter array type is most suitable, a Materion Sales Representative can provide more information.
